4. Mamma Mia!
"I’m a bit of a mama’s boy, I hate to admit, but, I mean, she’s always had my back, even as a young kid." - Jeremy
Wow, I can see why Jeremy is so attached to his mom: she sounds like… most moms. Mothers especially have their kids’ backs when they’re young, and if she has Jeremy convinced that it’s some blessing that she was nice to him as a toddler, then she sounds kind of emotionally manipulative. “You’d never have lost that weight if not for me! You’d never have tried out for this show if not for me! You’d never have felt too ashamed to have sex with that hot body if not for me!”
Then again, maybe Jeremy’s perception has been warped from hanging around Chris. Chris is on the opposite end of the spectrum with his feelings towards his mom, yet it’s equally as destructive. No doubt, his childhood sounds awful, but it seems a little too self-aware to say, “I punch unsuspecting people in the balls because of my mom” and “I get irrationally angry when you tell me to ‘shut the fuck up’ because of my mom.” As much as I hesitate to say Mike is right about anything (don’t get me started about the time I ordered mint chocolate chip and he gave me mint chocolate chunk), at some point Chris has to stop hiding behind excuses.
All in all, their fight wasn’t even that exciting. Marvin may have tried to make it sexy by labeling it “Chris and Mike action” (dude, if that’s what you call action, maybe Renee’s right about you being a virgin… with any luck, though, Jiana might take one for the team just to spite Phil), but it wound up being about as lame as Nina’s twisted ankle storyline.
Still, it sucks that Chris’s mom verbally abused him. It sucks that she abandoned him. And most of all, it sucks that she never taught him that important “how to find the light even when posing behind a female model” lesson that every mother ought to pass on to her son; at least Chris has a maternal figure in Tyra to right that wrong now.
The one part of Chris’s story that roused my suspicions was that his mom chucked her cell phone at his head. Hmm… there’s only person I’ve heard of ever doing that previously: Tyra’s arch-nemesis, Naomi Campbell. Coincidence? Or did Tyra purposefully search for and cast Naomi’s illegitimate albino child so that each week she could air five minutes of a guy talking about what a bitch his mom is only to reveal later in the season that it was Naomi all along?
